anyway”."

Study Abroad

 

If you didn’t have to go abroad

I would have held your hand…

 

We’re sitting at the diner table

Talking to pass time

I want to say you’re beautiful

Want to make you mine

Want to make this more romantic

But it’s not the time…

 

We’ll keep talking at this dinner table

But my mind begins to drift

I think about how next year

It will not be like this

You’ll be gone

I’ll miss you

Never got to kiss you

Only wishing you were here

My goodness, how I’ll miss you

 

If you didn’t have to go abroad

I would have held your hand

Dive deeper in our conversation

Ask to be your man…

But you have to go abroad

So I cannot show my heart

Cannot make any progress

Stop before I start

Better if I listen in

Pay attention to what you’re saying

Maybe if you were here next year

These thoughts I would be saying

 

If you didn’t have to go abroad

I would have held your hand…
